Gery was my cousin. His dad and mine were brothers and very close. The last time I saw him was at his mother’s funeral. We were talking about a family reunion and I am extremely sorry we never did it. My thoughts and prayers are with his family. We were all so close as kids. This makes me so sad. Rest In Peace Gery.

With Sympathy,
Cathy (Johnson) Tuomisto

My best memory was when my father told me I had to take over the remodeling of a house for him, and I had 3 weeks to get it done.
Being the great negotiator I was able to hire help and we would both get $1.00 per hour. In addition to that we had the use of my father's car to go to visit Montana State university.

We finished and managed to put 5000 miles on our trip. To Yellowstone and Glacier park.

I am sorry for your loss.

Although we haven't been in touch lately, I still remember the ''lively'' conversations we used to have and playing the quarter game at the baseball games. My condolences to Matt and the rest of your family. RIP big guy, and I hope they have sports in the hereafter. And yes, Mr. Harshberger is still delegating!
